While primarity psychodynamic (exploring underlying habitual thoughts, beliefs and behaviors), I also am trained in attachment theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, marriage and family therapy, Jungian-based depth therapy, and contemporary Relational Psychoanalysis.
I help couples identify negative emotional interactional styles rather than assigning blame. One safety has strengthened, the underlying emotions or hurt, anger, fear, and sadness emerge that allow couples to more deeply communicate while re-establishing trust. With trust strengthened, we can negotiate differences, heal past wounds, and let go of disconnecting beliefs and attitudes.
To understand depression, I consider genetic predisposition, childhood traumas, relationships disruptions, capacity for insight and spiritual receptivity. The first step isto embrace sadness, emptiness and despair as powerful teachers of life's most profound lessons, not simply as diseases or symptoms to be eliminated by any means necessary.
